  • 13MP UVC camera for multi-cam applications features FPGA and buffer for smooth streaming

    E-con has unveiled a Linux-ready, “FRAMEsafe” series of USB UVC cameras with multi-frame buffers that support 4K multi-camera applications. The initial, 13-megapixel “FSCAM_CU135” model has a Xilinx Spartan FPGA and 2Gb DDR3.

    E-con Systems has launched the FSCAM_CU135 — the first in a series of FRAMEsafe cameras with an internal buffer that “ensures reliable transfer of images over USB interface.” The FSCAM_CU135 is available in single samples for $239 with included lens, rising to $299 on Aug. 14.

  • Rugged industrial PCs with Skylake or Kaby Lake offer up to four PCIe/PCI slots

    Advantech’s modular “IPC-220/240” industrial computers run on 6th or 7th Gen Intel CPUs with dual SATA bays, up to triple display support, up to 6x USB 3.0 ports, and either 2x (220) or 4x (240) PCIe/PCI slots.

    Advantech has launched IPC-220 and IPC-240 industrial PCs starting at $1,055 for the IPC-220 with an Intel 6th Gen (Skylake) or 7th Gen (Kaby Lake) Core i3 chip and no operating system. No Linux distros are listed for this Windows-oriented system, but with the barebones option available with Advantech’s web-based Configure-to-Order Services (CTOS), you can presumably load your own. Advantech also lists specs for a separately available PCE-2029 or PCE-2129 mainboard.

  • 3.5-inch SBC takes quad-core Whiskey Lake-U for a spin

    Commell’s 3.5-inch “LE-37N” SBC features an up to quad-core, 8th Gen Whiskey Lake-U processor plus triple display support, 2x SATA III, 2x GbE, 4x USB 3.1 Gen 2, and M.2 and mini-PCIe expansion.

    Commell, which has gone all out for Intel’s 8th Gen Coffee Lake chips with embedded boards including its 3.5-inch LE-37M, has now launched a 3.5-inch single board computer that supports the more power-efficient, 8th Gen Whiskey Lake-U processors. The user manual indicates the new LE-37N board runs Linux and Windows.
